A Little About Me
I was born and raised in the Lake Norman area and couldn’t imagine life any other way. My family owns and operates Old Store Produce at Brown Mill Road and Beatties Ford and you can find me there most days if I’m not doing work on behalf of the town or taking care of my chickens on the farm I’m blessed to call home.
I am the founder of Connect Meck with Kindness, which focuses on homelessness in Mecklenburg County and Connect Meck with Free Stuff, which connects people who need items or have items to give to others.
I have a background in animal welfare, including policy advocacy at the local and state level, fostering, and rescue (my dog Truvy Jolene and my cat Macky are both rescues). The proudest I have been of Huntersville is when we became the first town in Mecklenburg County and one of the few places in the state of North Carolina where Puppy Mills are now illegal.
I am a first generation college graduate and attended Appalachian State University. I also attended CPCC, Hopewell High School, Bradley Middle School, and Long Creek Elementary School; I’m truly the product of public education and so grateful for the teachers that invested in me and helped me grow into the adult I am today.
While being a Commissioner is an honor, the greatest title I will ever have is Aunt Stacy! My three nieces give me purpose in all things I do and I want to ensure our community is a place they will always want to call home and be an example to them that you can achieve anything in life if you put faith in God, your community, and yourself.
